Pretty in Purple

This post was featured on Blue Cricket about a month back but for those that didn't see it...

I finally got around to redoing this adorable chair that I got at Savers for 1/2 off, making it a whopping $2.50.

Lets get started! First to undo the seat of the chair, it was super easy 3 screws and off it went.

The spray paint ended up costing the most, after a 40% off coupon to Hobby Lobby it ended up being $3.

The hardest part of this whole thing was deciding what leftover fabric to use in recovering the seat.

My daughter ended up picking out this cute paisley fabric. I ended up just stapling over the previous set.

And for a final touch...

Now I just have to put it back together again.


This whole project cost $5.50 for the chair and the paint, all the rest of the stuff I had on hand. It does pay off to keep things, still trying to convince my husband;)
